How Should We Define Antisemitism—and Who Should Define It? with Dina Porat and Mark Weitzman

By | Jul 20, 2021


The International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s (IHRA) working definition of antisemitism has been endorsed by 30 countries and hundreds of organizations worldwide yet remains the subject of fierce debate. Dina Porat, head of the Kantor Center for the Study of Contemporary European Jewry at Tel Aviv University and Mark Weitzman, director of government affairs at the Simon Wiesenthal Center, are in conversation with Ira Forman, Moment Institute Senior Fellow and former U.S. State Department’s Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism, about what’s behind the debate and what’s at stake. Malcolm Hoenlein, vice chair and William Daroff, CEO, of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations also participate.

This program is in partnership with Moment Magazine and the Conference of Presidents and is made possible with the support of the Joyce and Irving Goldman Family Foundation.
